It was once voted flatly to strike within

few minutes later, said Briggs, this action
waa reconsidered, and after a hot debate
It was determined to leave the matter still
to the arbitration In progress at St. Louis.
Messrs. Murphy and Rhoadea, who speak
with authority. Informed The Bee last night
that Mr. Briggs waa not connected wltii

statement baa no foundation in fact.
Fifty-Two Roada Involved.
To the Corn Belt, the Missouri Pacific,
the 81. Louis San Francisco and the
Missouri, Kanaas aV Texas roads the de
mand on the part of the conductora and
trainmen of fifty-two roads wa left for
ettlement. The fifty-two cover all terri
tory west and south of Chicago, including
the Illinois Central southern llnee, extend
ing then north to the Duluth, Sooth Shore
Atlantic, west to the Pacific coast and
aouth to the Gulf of Mexico. .When the
movement fpr higher wagea was started a
general committee of conductors'and train
men from every road waited upon each
general manager, but later It was decided
to abide by the results accomplished with
the Gould lines.
After being in conference since January
E these tour committees finally, on last
Thursday, submitted an ultimatum to the
four Gould lines. This waa that freight
train wagea should be raised 15 per cent
and passenger 12 per cent, and that
double-headers should be run on no train
heavier v than one englne'a rating. This
latter condition Is simply equivalent ts
tarring double-headers altogether, for It
la waatlng an engine to add It to a train
that needs but one.

RELIEF FOR THE STRICKEN

PLAN SEEMS TO BE WELL ORGANIZED
Dlstrlbatloa Is Made Through Fin
nish Committee Instead of Gov
ernor General, Who Shows
Slgrns of Belnaj Biased.
BT. PETERSBURG, Feb. 7. The corre
spondent of the Associated Press returned
yesterday from Holslngfors. He found
measures for the relief of the distress In
Finland apparently well organlied.
The distribution of funds Is carefully su
pervised. The Finnish national relief com
mittee has received up to the present $16,
000 from American relief organizations.
General surprise and gratitude I expressed
at the large contributions which the com
mittee haa received.
Other foreign countries hav contributed
13,000, and in Russia J2S.000 haa been col
lected,' including $14,000 from the Russian
Red Cross society, of which the dowager
czarina 1 th eprotectrea; $2,000 from the
csar and $10,000 from the csarewlcb.
The Finn were agreeably aatonlshed at
the fact that the imperial gitta aad the
Russian contributions through the official
St. Petersburg committee, organized by the
Interior minister. Von Plehwe, with Ad
miral Craemer aa chairman, were sent to
the Finnish committee Instead ot Governor
General- Brobrlckoff. The governor, how
ever, la receiving the funds collected by
the Novoe Vremya.
Governor Has a Preference.
All this la. regarded as significant, since
General Brobrlckoff in his official organ de
clared that justice demanded that In the
distribution of the government fund de
cided preference must be given to com
mune whose Inhabltanta obeyed the mili
tary aervlce decree.
The Flnlandera regarded this as tanta
mount to an admlasion that the money
passing through General Brobrtckoffa bands
la uaed against the Flnulsh committee, to.
eluding $49,000 which remained from the
previous famine fund, amounting to $181,
000. Owing to the demoralisation caused by
the money distribution at the time of the
lust famine the committee now restricts
help, excepting In the extreme cases, to th
distribution of foodstuffs, seeds and mate
rials, for cottaga Industries, as loan In
return for work.
In some cases, on the advice ot the ag
ricultural experts who have been through
out the country, small loans of money for
farm Improvements are granted on the con
dltlon that If the Improvements are actually
mado the committee will cancel 60 per cent
of the debt If It Is repaid by 1906.

may be assimilated to the general sur
roundings of the drama. Music alone can
accomplish this transformation of person
